The average person in the US spends over $900 on take-out food each year.

Researchers surveyed over 2,500 Americans and all had eaten take-out within the week of taking part in the poll. 

The average person spent $76 on take-out per month adding up to over $900 a year.  Around half admitted that they don't have the time or knowledge to cook for themselves or just don't want to.
